From the fundholder:
Pat (Padraic) Bywater was born March 26, 1964, in Midland. He died August 3, 1980. Sixteen special years, Pat was treasured by his family and friends. Sadly, during a 1980 New York visit, Pat and his companions, Mike and Randy, were killed in a tragic auto accident on August 3. He was a junior at Midland High School at his passing. Pat loved people of all ages and had a zest for life. Pat’s faith, family, friends, and travel were his passion, shared with good humor. Pat’s enthusiasm for education and his support of young students will be lovingly continued through the Midland Area Community Foundation with the Pat Bywater Memorial Scholarship award. The purpose is to honor Pat’s memory and to help Midland area high school students attend a college of their choice.
